The good news is that Teatro Municipal is located in the heart of São Paulo.

The bad news is that Teatro Municipal is located in the heart of São Paulo.

Why? Because the heart of São Paulo has been basically abandoned by the authorities who have allowed it be taken over by beggars, drug addicts, robbers, prostitutes and so on.

During the day it is busy and relatively safe although someone once tried to steal my wallet on the Viaduto do Chá just outside the Teatro Municipal in broad daylight.

At night, forget it. Visit the Teatro for Sunday morning or early evenings shows. You´ll certainly be a lot safer.

Once inside, avoid the seats on the higher floors, especially if you have vertigo. They are uncomfortable, squeezed together and at such a frighteningly steep angle that you feel as if you are on the edge of a cliff.

The seats at ground and the first level are obviously more expensive but, believe me, they are worth it.

Otherwise, it´s a cozy, intimate place and if you get a good view you can feel almost part of the orchestra.

However, there is really nothing for the tourist who does not want to watch a performance to see.

The structure was amazing. It was a shame that I couldn't see a performance there due to a packed schedule. Would definitely like to do that on my future trip.

This building has a lovely exterior. I couldn't get access to the interior which was disappointing. Perhaps tours could be offered.

The Municipal Teatehr is something out of this world. Totally worth the visit and the stroll in the valley below.
